Being an athlete in college (for me, a rower) is hard enough but I find trying to maintain a raw food diet while being a college athlete extremely difficult. Not only do coaches not understand why someone would choose to eat raw food but team pasta dinners and eating out make it really difficult. Does anyone have any advice about how to maintain a raw food diet while being an athlete? I find that I slip from eating raw food to carb loading on pasta, eating less vegetables, or consuming one too many cookies etc. because the coaches insist that carbs. found in pasta (for example) are necessary. I feel lost…does anyone have any advice?
